lunch! reports excellent turnout for 2017

lunch! enjoyed its biggest ever edition back in September, enjoying a record turnout for another successive year. Over 6,300 food-to-go operators, retailers and caterers packed the aisles at ExCeL London to see and sample the next-wave of NPD from 335 leading exhibitors.

The visitor list included over 1,800 independent cafés, coffee houses, sandwich shops, bakeries and delis, who travelled from across the UK and Ireland.

It’s a testament to lunch!’s continuing success, that it’s known throughout the food-to-go sector as the go to show for discovering innovative new ideas and concepts that you won’t see anywhere else. It’s a strong USP backed by a bank of glowing testimonials, which get better with each passing year.

It is thanks to this incredible industry support, says the organiser, that lunch! 2017 was a record-breaker in every respect. From its record headline attendance figures, to a record number of exhibitors rebooking onsite, to the record amount of stand space already reserved for 2018.
